Belstaff Classic Tourist Trophy Jacket
Save 20%: It’s not easy to earn a reputation for rugged reliability in the world of motorcycle gear, but Belstaff has been at it for nearly 100 years. As it’s risen to prominence in recent years, Belstaff has entrenched itself in the luxury performance apparel space; as a result, price tags tend to be high across the brand. Today, however, the Classic Tourist Trophy Jacket — one of Belstaff’s most iconic designs — is 20% off at RevZilla, currently selling for just $1,160. — Bryan Campbell
Seiko 5 Automatic Watch
Save Over 70%: The SNK805 features a 37mm case, automatic Seiko movement with day-date display, a green dial and matching nylon strap and 30m of water resistance. With its mid-size case and military-inspired look, this Seiko 5 is the perfect summer “beater watch,” and at this price, it’s hard to argue against it.— Oren Hartov
Italian-Made Saint Laurent Sunglasses
Save 66%: Dominated by the same aviator- and Wayfarer-inspired designs, the sunglasses market can seem a bit uninspired at times. If you’ve been yearning for a frame that breaks from the status quo, consider a style from Saint Laurent. The Parisian fashion house offers a range of distinct sunglasses, all crafted in Italy. From a combination acetate-metal Clubmaster style to a chunky Havana-acetate square silhouette, these well-made shades are anything but bland. And now at Nordstrom Rack, some of these sunglasses are up to 66 percent off while supplies last — that’s savings of $230. — John Zientek
Camping Essentials Sale
Save 25%: While Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial start of summer, Fourth of July is a good reminder that camping season is here in full force. There’s a good chance that you’re dusting off the gear bins for the first time since last fall to find that some items aren’t as pristine as you thought you’d left them and that those gaps in your camping kit remain unfilled. Now is the time to make amends. It’s the perfect time to take advantage of Fourth of July sales at retailers like REI, Backcountry and Huckberry to ensure that you’re well prepared for summer. Here are six things to get you started. — Meg Lappe
Fender ’68 Reissue Guitar Amps
Save up to $156: Now at Guitar Center, you can save over $100 on a range of classic Fender guitar amps. The Silverface ’68 Custom reissue line — a Princeton, a Deluxe Reverb, a Vibrolux Reverb and a Twin Reverb — is currently discounted. These classic tube amps recreate styles from a transitional year in Fender’s amp production: the tones were classic Fender — warm and bell-like — but they were also noticeably dirtier than amps produced in the mid-‘60s. The amps also presented a new aesthetic with a silver-and-turquoise front panel and an aluminum grille-cloth trim. — John Zientek
Black Hole Recycled 30-Liter Laptop Backpack
Save 30%: Of the well-loved products that Patagonia has created over the years — from ultralight synthetic insulation jackets to iconic fleeces — the Black Hole duffel is one that has weathered the years. The utilitarian gear hauler is made rugged enough to handle the rigors of weeks-long field expeditions yet practical enough that its features aren’t lost on casual travelers. (The 60-liter version is perfect for carry-on-only trips.) Similar to the duffel, the Black Hole Pack uses a wide opening to access its main compartment, which has a sleeve for a laptop or a hydration reservoir as well as smaller pockets for essential items. Unhindered by other unnecessary features, the bag is left to do what it should: provide ample space for whatever it is you might need to carry. Right now the Black Hole Pack is available for 30 percent off at Nordstrom. — Tanner Bowden
Naim Audio Mu-so Qb
Save $200: You can think of the Mu-so Qb as the perfect Sonos upgrade. It delivers rich audio in a super attractive and compact body; its main feature is, of course, a super huge volume dial that lights up like a halo and has great “knob feel.” Normally $699, the speaker is on sale right now for less than $500 on World Wide Stereo’s website. Just type in the promo code FIREWORK at checkout. — Tucker Bowe
